This will be a report of the 77 Phillies playing at the 63 Dodgers. I won't give the dice rolls, but will cover the traits tests passed or failed and the charts the results came from. Hopefully this will be of interest. The is Game 7 of a series between the two with the teams tied at 3-3 and the Phillies winning the previous game and the Dodgers the game before that.

The 77 Phillies are sunny for pre-game and in Semi-Harmony. Game Day gives 3 extra strategy cards for Danny Ozark. Mike Schmidt is hot, Ted Sizemore cold and Greg Luzinski is cleanup.

The 63 Dodgers are stormy and in dissonance. Game Day takes one strategy card away from Walter Alston. Tommy Davis is hot, Ken McMullen cold and Frank Howard cleanup.

Umpires from 2102 season are Jim Wolf at first, Tim Mcclelland at second, Vic Carpazza at third and Sam Holbrook behind the plate.

Nice report. How do you like this game as compared to, say, Strat or APBA?

I like it better for a few reasons. I am not a stats perfectionist when it comes to tabletop baseball. If a power hitter hit 40 home runs in a season, then in a replay I am fine with him hitting as few as 30 or as many as 50. This game will make each player perform at believable levels but it will do it in a very enjoyable manner. The game brings a lot of detail into play with bogging down the mechanics. Umpires will play a role, ballparks come into play, hot and cold players as well as hot and cold teams will make a difference. Yet for a small additional cost ($6) beyond the reasonable price of the game, you can create any team you'd like to play, even fictional leagues or minor leagues. I am excited for people to get this and give it a try. I believe most will be impressed.

The only thing i havent seen is how lefty/right matchups and ratings are used in this game. Other wise it sounds great.

There is a place on the master chart where if the batter hits from the same side as the pitcher throws it is an out and if not then you go on and check for a hitter quality.

I had a pitcher/hitter match ups come into play, in my game last night. Had the stadium come into play as well. Haven't heard from the umps yet, which is fine.

A little more concerning, for me, is that in my two games played I have yet to see a double play. I may need to start house-ruling something for ground outs with men on 1st

I've played around 20 games and I find the DP distribution to be about right.

I have come to agree with this. I think sometimes the gamer is at fault, forgetting that it is a DP with a runner on first, less than 2 outs and a 1 as the lead number. There is a 50-50 chance there will be a 1 on one of the three dice each roll.

I haven't seen that many Unusual results in 5 games. Hoping to start seeing more of them soon.

If they happened too often would they then not be that unusual?

Rick, I'm curious as to how Koufax did in his first game of the series. I'm thinking he might typically give up 0-2 runs per start, not the 5 in this game. I see that he had a handful (4-5) starts in '63 where he gave up 5-6 runs per start. I'm ok with results that don't necessarily match historical stats, but would sorta expect them to be roughly close, otherwise why bother with real names. If he gave up more than 1-2 runs in his first start, my mind can't help but wonder a bit...
